Hello! This is Rebecca Kochenderfer, Senior Editor of Homeschool.com. I admit it. I stole my son’s writing curriculum. Why should the kids get to have all the fun? I have all these great stories in my head, but my fiction writing skills are, let’s be kind, “not that strong”. But I really want to write a novel, darnit. So I “borrowed” the writing course I bought for my son and I’m using it a little bit every day. I am having so much fun!
“The One Year Adventure Novel” is a brilliant DVD course designed for teens who love to write and want to publish their own novel. You watch the DVD lesson (the teacher is excellent!) and then do the steps in the Workbook. By the end of the school year you will have written a complete, publishable novel. My son wrote a novel for his senior project, printed copies of it on Lulu.com, and took the book with him on his college interviews. The colleges loved it and it was such a confidence-builder for him.
I can’t recommend this program enough. Just try to be a “good share-er” and let your kids use it too. The One-Year Adventure Novel is available at: http://www.oneyearnovel.com/
